>> I am off to look for this kit...
Better be quick. Revell adds 10 Euros to the price with every new release.

>> Those companies are mostly from great modellers who did amazing models and dios, without any of the stuff they try to make us buy today......
My thinking exactly. I have stopped falling for this kind of merchandise after buying an "Eric Clapton Signature Edition" guitar only to find out my playing still sounded like ass. ;)

This model brings back some great memories of sailing on one of these, in the Australia Army LSM's of 32 Small Ships Sqn. 1964. "Vernon Sturdee" AV2355.
I am still yet to buy this kit, but now I have seen that it is as all LSM's of the era, I will have a lot of fun doing so.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Beautifully done.

No, but can try to shoot a few more if you let me know what aspect you are interested in. Note that it is a tiny thing. BTW, I have given the blades a little sag after I shot the photos in the album.

@Gert Jan Kok : Please note my suggestion in the project description regarding civility of comments. Especially with a name like "Kok". Ooops, I am sorry. ;)

Sooooo cute - will be sitting next to the Gama Goat when available and finished!
I hope they will do a non-APC version as well as it looks even cuter with more windows ;).
And who said pigs can't fly? See heli transport photo on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandvagn_206 .

A comment after building the kit:

These decals had every chance of becoming the best set I have ever used. The designers took extreme care to make sure they fit every aspect of the kit - every nook and cranny, every lump and bump is faithfully reflected in the decals in sub-millimeter precision (e.g. the holes for the vortex generators on the fin). And there is next to nothing left to paint. Simply unbelievable.

So what went wrong?

The printing of the decals is not only rather thick, but brittle and, worst of all, highly inflexible! Even the little bit of bending that is required in places such as the wing leading edge becomes a nightmare that can only be overcome with repeated applications of copious amounts of Future underneath and MicroSol on top. And in spite of several layers of gloss cote added on top, they are already beginning to flake off at the edges.

Using very hot water (> 90 °C) to detach the decals from the backing paper helps a tiny little bit, but also enlarges the decals noticeably - not really surprising.

The fact that you can get anywhere at all with these decals is probably due to the angular and "boxy" nature of the Tornado fuselage. They would have been totally useless on a "curvy" F-16 or Rafale.

Given the perfect design, the performance of the decals is highly frustrating. This must be the biggest waste of opportunities since the introduction of celibacy.
